Home for the Duration

Tuesday was my last day of work. Pumpkin is clearly a bit confused by this change in routine. This morning, she asked me if I would be staying home to rest again. I explained that I would be home until after the baby was born. I don't think she really believed me.

Did I get everything done at work? As Pumpkin would say, "I did-nent". But I came close. I have a reasonably short list of things I'm trying to finish up from home. I can add that to the list of things I need to do at home- like continue merging the guest room and office so that the baby can have a room.

I worked for about an hour and a half yesterday, and will probably do the same today. It is amazing how much more I can get crossed off my list now that I am at home and free from needing to respond to the items people brought to me throughout the day.

I also took a nice long nap yesterday, and watched a fair amount of bad TV. I am always struck by the commercials that are on during the day time. There are the same commercials for cleaning supplies (aimed at the stay at home parent, no doubt), cheap car insurance (the person stuck at home because he/she can't insure the car?), and technical and trade schools (the person who needs a new, better job) that I remember from my last pre-baby stint at home. There is also a new category this time- commercials for gastric surgery weight loss products. I'm at a loss to explain those. Surely the seriously overweight have to work during the day, too?
